Announcement Made at A.
F. of L. Convention That
1 7 Representatives Will
Carry Union Cards.
The Insistent demand of labor Is for
the complete, democratization of in
dustry, meaning that every worker
shall huva u compelling vote In the
fixing of his compensation, the hours
of his labor nnd the conditions under
which he shall work.
Labor claims that Justice can not bo
assured except through a freo nnd
voluntary system of collective bar
gaining between employer and em
plojc. Tho meaning of the term "col
lective bargaining" may be had by
paraphrasing tho lines of Charles
Ferguson" the author of "Bellglon and
Democracy": "It Is the machinery de
vised by studious and sclf-sacrlflcing
men toprevent the well-fed from driv
ing hard bargains with tho hungry."
Chairman U. S. Commission on In
dustrial Itelntlons.
November 14, 1914.
It became known today at the con
vention of the American Federation of
Labor that 17 members of the next Con
gress will be union card men. Labor,
therefore, will control the balance of
pow er.
These men are Frank Buchanan, of
Illinois; William Cary, of "Wisconsin;
John Casey, of Pennsylvania; G. G. Hel
vering, of Kansas; Albert Johnson, of
Washington; Edward Keating, of Colo
rado; John Key, of Ohio; David Lewis,
of Maryland; Meyer London, of New
York; James Maher, of New York; John
Nolan, of California; VS. E. Roberts, of
Nevada; Isaac Sherwood, of Ohio;
Charles Smith, of New York, and Carl
van Dyke, of Minnesota.
The Democrats will havo IB more than
enough to control the House.
It Is evident, therefore, that organized
labor, represented by 17 members, can
hold (he balance of power in the House
of Representatives If these members were
to lay aside party dissensions and vote
as a whole on labor measures, or united
In filibustering in order to force conces
sions along the line of labor legislation.
It Is pointed out by delegates at the
convention that the passage and adoption
of the "labor-exemption clause" In the
Clayton anti-trust law was due entirely to
the co-operation and the united stand
taken by the "labor group" m congress.
It Is also pointed out that should the 17
"laborltes" In the 64th Congress continue
this co-operation they would be In a posl
tlon to force many other valuable con
cessions. Delegates said today that there Is every
indication that President Wilson will call
an extra session of the new 61th Congress
next spring to consider labor legislation.
This morning's session of the conven
tion was the shortest of the week. Sev
eral resolutions of minor Importance were

Merchants Incensed by
Amendment Following P.

Indignation over an announced Increase
of fares from Philadelphia to Atlantic,
Slty, following close Upon the heels of
a refusal of Pennsylvania trnfllc officials
to accede to demands oft business for
shore betterment, rnn riot In the busi
ness community this morning.
"We have been uniformly friendly
toward tho railroads and this is what
we get for It," said Benjamin Bacha
rach, president of the Chcmber of Com.
Merchants who are not so close to the
railroads ns the big hotel men of the
beach front are particularly incensed be
causo repeated efforts to prevail upon
the Pennsylvania to build a modern sta
tion In the place of Its antiquated fram
tenhlnal have been fruitless.
Feeling Is particularly strong over the
raising of fares for the third-rail line
frorn Camden to the shore, a return trip
ticket for which will in future cost p.
When the line was first opened with
hourly trains, theare was il.EO.for the
round trip. Subsequently It .was .Increased
to $1.75,, with a decrease of train serv
ice, Now with still fewer trains, the fare
is to be K.
TakingMnto consideration the fact that
it Is possible to ride 10 miles in New
York for a nickel, business men today
said that It would be an ample figure for
the electric train trip, considering the
time consumed. Some professed to be
lieve that the fare advance is a move
to compensate the line for the enormous
bill of damages Incurred when an electric
train dashed from the Thoroughfare
bridge with heavy loss of life, some years
ago. '
Moro optimistic citizens expressed the
opinion that the railroad is after more
revenue to provide for the long delayed
new station.
